“I always had on the back of my mind that me and Felice would fight, because we’re the hot girls in the sport. So I kind of got myself ready for that.”

“She’s been around for a long time, and she’s been somewhat of a veteran in the sport. Just to be fighting her, and to be at her level in as honor. I looked up to her when I first started the sport. She was someone who I wanted to follow in her footsteps. Now to be on the same playing field and the same level as her, it’s exciting. I’m really excited about this fight.”

“I am very comfortable with that. A lot of people say I’m very young for all of this to be happening, but I’ve kind of always been ahead of my age. This is everything I knew I would be doing eventually in my life. I’m happy that it’s happening now.”

In a new interview with The MMA Hour, popular bantamweight female fighter Paige VanZant talked about her newly booked scrap against Felice Herrig.

Is she right about her assessment?
